The Fellowship Program in Endocrinology and Metabolism is designed to provide intensive research and clinical training for physicians who are board eligible in internal medicine. The fellowship lasts two years with an optional third year and fulfills the requirements for certification in Endocrinology and Metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
The major aim of the program is to prepare the physicians for careers in academic medicine or clinical practice by providing a firm grounding in the fundamentals of endocrinology and metabolism. The program offers broad clinical training, both in the outpatient and inpatient venues, as well as outstanding research mentorship by nationally-known research faculty. During each year of the program, all fellows undertake clinical and research training, the relative percentages of which vary depending on the fellow's interest and abilities.

The program is established at the Indiana University School of Medicine, the second-largest medical school in the U.S. and the only medical school in the state of Indiana. The campus comprises, in one closely knit complex, four adult hospitals, a pediatric hospital, an ambulatory care center and a number of unique research facilities. The Medical School is centrally located on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis in downtown Indianapolis.
Applications for fellowship positions will be accepted through the ERAS system. Requirements include a common application, personal statement, and letters of recommendation from three medical referees, one of whom should be the director of the applicant's residency program. We will invite selected candidates to a day-long series of interviews on campus, generally in February or March of the year prior to appointment. Positions are filled through the NRMP (National Resident Matching Program) matching program and matches are typically announced in June of the year prior to appointment. Stipends are determined by the number of years of training after the M.D. degree according to a Medical School-wide scale.

A combined fellowship in Medicine-Pediatrics Endocrinology and Metabolism is also offered in conjunction with the Department of Pediatrics. Positions in the pediatric endocrinology fellowship program are offered separately and do not utilize the NRMP matching process. Therefore, applicants interested in a combined fellowship position should contact the pediatric endocrinology fellowship program director, Dr. Jack Fuqua at 317-274-3889, no later than September of the year preceding the June match for the adult endocrinology program.We very much appreciate your interest in our program and welcome your ERAS application.
